Perhaps, but the national guard are still state troops (most of the time!). You might even say they are your neighbors. There's probably an armory in your hometown.
Not anymore ...... they, like most everything else, have been consolidated for more efficiency (and easier control, methinks) .....

Who paid for their training (boot camp and Schools)? Who paid for all the equipment? Who pays for their weekend drill? Who pays for their summer training? Who allows the State Governor to retain "command" when not called into active service?

The answer to each of those questions, is the same: The National Guard are Federal Troops.

I don't even want a farthing, thankee......
